Canvas Christmas Gift Bags

Hey There!! Happy Black Friday to y’all!! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are able to avoid most of the crowds today!

Silhouette sent me some Fuzzy Heat Transfer to play with.  Man, I love that stuff. It looks like felt when you are done with it and you don’t have to go to all the trouble of cutting it out by hand.


I decided to make some Gift Bags for my niece and nephews for Christmas (Emily act surprised when you open the box *wink*).  I thought it would be fun to stuff their Christmas presents into reusable bags instead of just wrapping them. With the intention that they could use the bags as library or church bags after the Holidays.


They were SUPER easy to make. The bags were purchased at a craft store.  I used images I downloaded from the Silhouette store, and just followed the directions on the box.

Just make sure that you reverse your design before you cut it out and use a pressing cloth when you are ironing your design onto your bag.

I did find it helpful to iron the INSIDE of the bags to get the heat transfer to stick really well.

Supplies Used:

Silhouette Cameo Starter Kit Bundle Cutter

Silhouette Flocked Heat Transfer, Red

Go forth and Shop!!


*disclosure: I did receive complimentary fuzzy heat transfer from Silhouette for this post.
